If the model is sitting on the window sill for any length of time, beware of sunny weather and turn the model regularly to avoid fading on one side.


Obviously, you'll be sailing her at the earliest opportunity.  :-))


Ray.


Ha ha Ray you are spot on!  I turn it around every week how sad am I  {-)   The trouble is I've no where else to put it at the moment!

“My wife really like this one too” WOW high praise! Don’t know if any of us can achieve that lofty goal twice in a lifetime {-)


Seriously great work. Was a fun build to follow.


Cheers Ray - I was amazed when she told me - mind you I've annoyed her ten fold since so normal service has resumed in my house.  Honestly no one else could put up with me she deserves a medal and a fantastic holiday!

Aha, not so sad at all mate - I did exactly the same thing with one of mine - and the paint work is still good after 20 years!  :-))

Hello Mark,

the words like chapeau, class, perfect and great documentation are not enough to mention here again. I would also like to thank you personally for this great achievement that you have accomplished here.

As already described in my introduction "I'm new here - hello dear model building friends", you are the inspiration to build it up in nature based on your great documentation.

Enough written. The kit is waiting.

Greetings Ralf

Thanks lads  :-))   It got a really good clean today  :-))


As its completely water proof all I had to do was strip it down and put the parts under the bathroom shower.  Its come up like new  {-)


I've contacted my local boat club so hopefully she will be sailing soon.  I'm just waiting for a reply and hopefully they will allow steam.
